Aside from visiting historical landmarks, we highly recommend a tour of Armenia’s beloved capital – the city of Yerevan.
Legend says that the first word Noah pronounced as he exited the ark was “Yerevats” – translated as “it is seen”. This refers to the land he supposedly saw after the huge flood, which was later changed to “Yerevan”. You can find information on the history of city in the Yerevan History Museum, established in 1931. There are more than 87,000 cultural values in the museum telling about the city from ancient times to our days.
After, the guests will visit the handmade carpet factory “Megeryan”, where they will get acquainted with the culture of carpet weaving, which occupies a special place in the Armenian cultural system. In traditional Armenia carpet weaving has been developing since ancient times. During the excursion, visitors will take part in a master class of carpet weaving that will allow them to get acquainted with the traditional Armenian culture with all of its charm.
Then the tour will take you to Tsitsernakaberd, the memorial of Armenian Genocide. Armenians from all over the world visit this memorial to honor their ancestors.
